Valenciso Rioja Reserva (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
Valenciso was established in 1998 as a collaboration between ex Bodegas Palacios’ Luis Valentin and Carmen Enciso. With a wealth of experience in Rioja wine production, they decided to focus on just one style of wine - a classically structured, subtle and elegantly fine Reserva. It is this quiet determination, integrity and emphasis on quality that have made this small winery one of the most respected by Rioja lovers and wine writers alike. The results speak for themselves!
Valenciso wines are beautifully understated and elegant. The Valenciso Reserva is well-made and far from ostentatious, they blend the best of tradition with fine modern practice. Pungent meaty and curranty aromas, and hints of cedar and spice. Produced purely from Tempranillo, and aged in new French and American oak barriques, this wine shows all the elegance of the variety, soft-bodied and smooth. Delicate and velvety, with plenty of complexity, and a strong core. The award-winning Valenciso Reserva is great with red meats, strong cheeses, game pie.

Valenciso Rioja Reserva: ” ‘Mascarpone cherries, raspberries, plums and sage. Sweet spices and coconut.’ Matthew Wakeford; ‘Meaty, earthy roasted cocoa beans, but generous red and black fruit. This would be great with steak.’ Robert Mason; ‘Ripe fruit profile – plums and strawberry compote with fresh mint, nutmeg and baking spices.’ Beatrice Bessi.” 91pts.
